Other world premieres on tap include Shawn Telford’s multi-narrative drama “B.F.E.,” Craig Butta’s ethnography doc “If You Take This,” Mary Dore’s feminism docu “She’s Beautiful When She’s Angry” and Paul Harrill’s drama “Something, Anything.”

The annual Florida has lined up a slate of features in three competitive categories (doc feature, narrative feature and “Independent Visions”) as well as a spotlight series that includes festival-circuit alums such as Michael Fassbender starrer “Frank,” Gillian Robespierre’s “Obvious Child” and Fred Schepisi’s “Words and Pictures.”

Screening 252 films (including shorts), the 2014 edition runs April 4-13.
